12-year Old Kid Gets Obsessed With Minecraft; Sent For Rehabilitation
His parents are very worried.
A 12-year old kid got so obsessed with Minecraft that he had to be sent for rehabilitation, according to local authorities. James Bacon, a 12-year old Californian, has been playing Minecraft for so long that he has a bigger dependency on the game than on the food he eats. His mother had to call a psychiatrist so he could treat the little kid.
“He says they call him rat kid on the Internet and that makes him very furious”, said the mom to our reporter Gary Cockburn. She kept going: “He starts raging every time someone ‘destroys’ his house on MInecraft and he then starts destroying things inside our house”.
The parents also said that the kid sometimes wakes up at night, sweating and screaming, because some “Herobrine” is chasing him in his dreams.
Psychiatrists say that he may take months to recover, especially since he won’t be able to play Minecraft during the process.
